The saddest thing to be...

" Old Admirals who feel the wind, and never put to sea." - Al Stewart, Old Admirals.

"Now just like you I've sailed my dreams like ships across the sea
And some of them they've come on rocks, and some faced mutiny"

Well, no easy away to put this, due to various things I won't bother with, for the first time in the 40 odd years that I have been running games at conventions, I have had to cancel my trip to Huzzah in Maine,  and thus cancel the 3 Prince Valiant games I was scheduled to run. 

I apologise to those who had already signed up or who were contemplating doing so. Maybe they will appear next year but that's only a vague possibility at this point.

So a change to something else I think. Not sure what but requests will be considered.


  1. Ross, I'm very sorry to hear that. I hope you are well. All the best.


  2. Sorry you've had to cancel - hope this is a temporary matter (in a positive sense, of course)...

    1. Thanks, there are a few smaller local events this fall, that'll do me for this year.

  3. Sorry to heat this - real life does sometimes get in the way of living best life.

  4. The older I get, the more Al Stewart's lyrics resonate. Sorry to hear that you've had to scratch Huzzah, but perhaps being an old admiral you've seen enough of the wide, distant world and smaller and closer to home is now all you need.

  5. Al Stewart, a favourite of mine.
    A shame for you Ross, hope things resolve themselves better in the foreseeable future.

  6. Sorry to read that you won't be running your games this year.
    Wishing you all the best.

  7. Hope things are well Ross.

  8. Sorry to hear you won't be at Huzzah! You've become something of a fixture there. 😊 All the best, Bob.

  9. Sorry to hear that. Hopefully we'll see further adventure of the gallant prince here on the blog.
